Welcome to Crail
Crail HarbourCrail makes an ideal base for a holiday in Fife. Located in the East Neuk, a string of medieval fishing villages along the south east coast of Fife, there is a wealth of places to see and things to do within the immediate area. St Andrews, world famous as the home of golf, is just a short drive away. Further afield, but still within easy driving distance for day trips, are the likes of Dundee, Stirling and Edinburgh. Within a short distance north of Perth, the landscape shifts dramatically as the visitor enters Highland Perthshire.

Crail has an ancient history. It was well settled by the 800s and was a thriving town by the 1100s. It was made a royal burgh by King Robert the Bruce in 1310.

St Andrews CathedralCrail has one of the best small harbours in the East Neuk and is well known for shellfish; in season, fresh lobster and dressed crab are available at the harbour. Dating back to the 16th century, the curved breakwater offers protection from the estuary of the River Forth. In 1826, Robert Stevenson contributed the straight west pier.

Coming up from the harbour, you reach the main street through Crail. Following the road towards the golf course, you will pass Crail History Museum and, shortly before the Marketgate, there is a road leading down to Crail Pottery.

The area offers an amazing number of golf courses, including the likes of the Old Course and Kingsbarns. Crail, itself, though only a small village, boasts two fine links golf courses, Balcomie and Craighead; visitors are welcome, but remember to book in advance.
